Lactation Cookie Recipe

When my son was born, he didn’t like napping much, so I carried him around in a sling ALL day long…

Knowing that I had to keep my milk supply up, do something nutrition- related, AND be on my feet for hours on end, I decided to create a lactation cookie to knock all other cookie recipes out of the park!

This, my friends, is IT!

Once I had this recipe, I gave them to friends, started selling them to friends- of- friends, and slowly everyone was asking for the recipe. 

After keeping it a secret for ages, I just couldn’t do it to the female race anymore… so here it is… please make, enjoy and DEFINITELY send me pictures of your creations, tagging me @jodiebrandman on Instagram!

The Recipe:


  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup oats (blended to a fine powder)
  • 3 tbsp freshly ground flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp brewers yeast
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt

Optional add ins: choc chips with vanilla, cinnamon & raisins


  • Preheat oven to 175 degrees (fan oven)
  • Mix all dry ingredients together, then mix in oil and egg and stir.
  • Either roll into balls or use a scoop. This will make around 15 cookies
